Nothing too eventful this week, no pictures, even. Sorry! Derek worked all day Saturday and 1/2 day Sunday, so we've been kind of bored at home. Saturday I even made up errands to run just to get out of the house! It's been so cold and chilly here, I don't really like getting out, but when you're going crazy, sometimes thats all you can do! 
Wow! I know this is probably old news to most of you- but gas prices are way cheaper! It just really hit me today when I filled up for $22!!! Isn't that crazy. I think it is $1.91 here, and I have a card that our grocery store does for so many cents off per gallon, and I think I was up to $0.15 off, thus $1.76/gal - whoa! I nice relief since it has been costing like $50 to fill up!
Yesterday I rented a "Rug Doctor" from Lowe's and cleaned all our carpets. Ugh - way more work than I wanted to do. Our carpets desperately needed it, especially since we don't bathe Bailey as much since Annabel came along! This was my first time to ever clean the carpets! I have no experience with carpet care, since we never had it growing up and this is our first house with it. Bleh - never again will I have carpet in a house. I just think it is really gross - weird, I know. 
Since Derek worked all weekend he stayed with us today. He vacuumed and bagged leaves, and put in storm windows - exciting! For one my classes, we are learning how to administer psychological tests, so I gave Derek an IQ test today! I don't know if any of you have ever taken a real IQ test (not the Reader's Digest version!) but it is quite an ordeal! It took us about two hours (annabel was napping). I'm sure none of you are surprised, but I married a pretty smart guy! I won't tell you his composite score, but I will say overall he is one standard deviation above the mean (70th %), with his "processing speed" being two standard deviations (87th %)!  It was a fun experience for me as well. 
Tonight Derek took me out for Mexican and now we are settling in to watch 'Chuck' and call it a night! I'll leave you with the only pictures I've taken of Annabel all week:

Lyns, So how much did the rug doctor cost? I keep begging Alex to have our carpets cleaned, but he thinks it's a waste of money since our carpets are always in the country with 2 kids and a dog...and we're leaving this house soon. When we build, we're doing almost ALL hardwood or tile, but I might let the girls have carpet upstairs in their rooms and make it off limits to the dog. Oh my...I'm really wanting to get some of those diapers!! That's an awesome deal! I guess I could buy a couple in gender neutral patterns?
